    U-19 WC: India beat Sri Lanka in warm-up

    Brisbane: India got the better of Sri Lanka by 33 runs in a low-scoring ICC Under-19 World Cup 2012 warm-up match at Wynnum-Manly on Tuesday.

    A 98-run fourth-wicket partnership between Vijay Zol (43) and Hanuma Vihari (64) helped India to a modest 191 for 8 after Sri Lanka had made early inroads to have their rivals reeling at 32 for 3.

    Sri Lanka's new ball pair of Chamod Pathirana (2 for 13 from 7 overs) and captain Sanitha de Mel (2 for 44) performed strongly but India were able to post a defendable total on the back of their fourth-wicket stand.

    India then dismissed Sri Lanka for 158 in the 46th over after Angelo Jayasinghe had threatened to inspire his side at one stage.

    Jayasinghe finished on unbeaten 64 but his effort was not enough to lift Sri Lanka to victory as they struggled to overcome the loss of wickets just when partnerships where threatening to blossom.

    For India, Punjab paceman Kamal Passi picked up 3 for 34.

    Brief Scores:

    India: 191 for 8 in 50 overs (Hanuma Vihari 64, Vijay Zol 43; Chamod Pathirana 2 for 13, Lahiru Madushanka 2 for 28).

    Sri Lanka: 158 all out in 45.5 overs (Angelo Jayasinghe 64 not out; Kamal Passi 3 for 34).
